I repainted this old door in Providence Olive by Benjamin Moore.
To make the door still look it's old age I applied ebony stain in the creases.
Even if the stain drips (as shown) baby oil will help blend that in.
The oil helps move the stain around while you rub it in with an old t-shirt.
I used black electrical tape to apply photos behind the glass.
Filled some terracotta pots with a candle, moss and tiny pine cones. See post here.
Placed them on two ebony stained 2x4's attached right on to the door with decorative iron brackets.
In the center of the glass panes I hung a mason jar from
framing wire on an old hook.
Inside the jar is flour and a tea light candle.
This is the first wall you would see if you walked through my front door.
The door is attached to the wall with a corner bracket at the top.
I need some garland up there to hide that.
I like the dim light of candles in the foyer on long dark winter days.
The casually displayed photos are some of my favorites.
(except my hair is too short in the above photo)
Our kids are growing up way too fast.
They are twins and will turn 10 this week.
Happy Birthday Ben and Luke!
